Behind the wrought iron gate, past the herbaceous patio and through the atrium is Talula's Garden, the warm and elegant Washington Square eatery from Aimee Olexy and Starr Restaurants. The modern menu, prepared with carefully-sourced ingredients and a light European touch, changes with the seasons. The artful cuisine, hospitable staff, sustainable spirits, and a focus on cheese make the dining experience here incredibly memorable.

    The food was delicious! We were served a dish we didn’t order but it was promptly removed and didn’t appear on our bill. It was my birthday and I was touched by the complimentary cake with candle. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

    My carrot hating husband agreed to share the carrot soup with me. He regretted sharing,would have preferred to have a whole serving for himself! We both loved the bronzino-he had the “real” one (a la menu) -I had the modified version for celiacs. Both of us were equally happy. The broccoli was cooked to utter perfection. Over all,we can’t wait to return!

    The service was excellent. Our server was super attentive and very knowledgeable. We had a person in our group with a dietary restriction and our server was extremely accommodating. All of our food was delicious. Our cocktails were amazing and dessert was to die for. That will not be my last time at Talula’s!

    Overall, we had a wonderful dinner - the food and service were great. Our only disappointment was it was all a little TOO quick. We felt we took our time ordering and settled in with a bottle of wine, then our appetizers and entrees both came surprisingly quickly. The portions were generous and the food so delicious that we did not have room for dessert (unusual for us), so we enjoyed/finished the wine after our entrees and we’re still paid and walking out in just over an hour. I understand wanting to keep service turning over, but we were disappointed for a Saturday night date to be over so quickly. We will definitely be back but perhaps try to pace our meal differently in the future.

    FANTASTIC! We made reservations and were seated promptly. We brought another couple who were graciously treating us to an Eagles Game afterwards, so we wanted this to be a great meal to reciprocate their kindness. Thank goodness we came here. Our friends were WOWED by the service (Tracy), the food was mouth-watering, just INCREDIBLE, and the ambiance so beautiful. Our conversation for the entire ride to Lincoln Financial for the Eagles Game was, "That was the BEST meal, that was the BEST server (Tracy), that was the BEST restaurant, etc..." I would HIGHLY recommend Talula's Garden and can't wait to go back.

    The burrata toast appetizer was exceptional. MUST TRY. The short rib was mediocre. Somewhat dry, burnt, not tender. The chicken gnocchi was good. cucumber salad was good. The dessert key lime soufflé was good.

    The only advice we would give is to realize that the "beginnings" are the portion size of entrees. All the food is great. Definitely order the cheddar chive biscuits!! Also there is enough waitstaff that you never feel ignored.

    We had a fabulous meal! The appetizers - carrot soup w “bird seed” nuts and burrata w brussels - were both excellent, and the brussels were almost the size of a main. And main courses were also fantastic: generous portions of pork belly, fresh baby bak choi, and a great lamb ragu. Decently priced Malbec - but surprised to find no beers on tap and just one IPA. Nevertheless, we’ll be back and totally recommend Talula. Just need to check out THE LOVE next!

    We arrived about 10 minutes early for our reservation @8:00 PM.It was a holiday weekend.There were 4 people at the front podium with iPad’s and frantic.The welcome from the “staff” never happened.I dine out at least twice a week.I get confusion,but this seemed like a poor management issue.Our waiter Kevin was great,but it took him 10 minutes after we were seated for him to arrive at our table?I love the food .I love the space. I do not like to feel like I am doing anyone a favor to eat in their restaurant.We will try another time before crossing you off our list Sincerely, Patrick OConnell
